I like to have a lot of editor windows open at once. In the last version of Eclipse that I had, the editors that were displayed at the top of the editor area were the ones I used most recently, and further, I was able to alphabetize the drop down list that showed the rest of them. I feel like I'm going crazy, because in Juno I a) have no idea how it picks which editors to have available as tabs (seemingly randomly), and b) for the life of me can't figure out how to alphabetize them. Can anyone address these two questions?

Thanks!

The old behavior is called MRU, look for this term in this document

Thanks! I find this very bizarre though. Switching to classic mode definitely made the appearance worse (on Windows 7 at least), although it did fix my problem. (Although it's strange - I never had the left/right navigation arrows the document referred to) Isn't there some way to keep the nice aesthetics while at the same time having some logical treatment of editor windows?
